Today, with the development   of paradigms such as the compact city, smart growth and new urbanism, mixed land use-as one of principles of this paradigm- has been expanded  in  urban planning of  developing countries and  various researchers tried to develop literature and assessment methods of land use based on the concept of mixture of  land use.

The concept of urban land use mix implies that nearby land uses or activities have an influence over each other across a limited spatial range.One of the interests of researchers in field of land use studies  is appropriate assessing of  land use mix and therefore some researchers have tried to  measure mixture of land use in different parts of a city using specific indicators. Given the importance of the subject, this paper tried to measure mixture of  land use in  neighborhoods of Sabzevar City   using defined indicators (entropy, accessibility , focal  statistics). The results indicate that the values obtained from these indicators is closely together. Final  index was calculated by combining these3 indices that  It was determined the significant difference between different neighborhoods.  The results show a negative correlation between the distance  of neighborhood from the city center and mixture of land use ,So with distance from the downtown, land use mix is reduced. Moran statistics also show that there is spatial autocorrelation between different neighborhoods in terms of land use.
